In Programs

A carefree joy, sometimes biting irony, and a certain melancholy - these works propel us with intensity into poetic musical realms, with powerful and contrasting sonic energies.

In addition to an innate sense of melody, two points of convergence in the program: the works of Francis Poulenc for piano and voice are presented in an original instrumental arrangement by Adrien Tsilogiannis. The poetry of Jean Moréas, already present in Poulenc's "Airs chantés," serves as inspiration for Tsilogiannis, leading to a darker and more mysterious vein.
